Winter driving (remote starter warmup)gets 20mph.Like comfortable power seat, large mirrors. Dash controls are easy to use without taking eyes off road. Don't have to brake as hard at lights when tranny downshifts and slows car. It was purchased for wife about 10 months ago. She loves driving it. Likes backup camera and liftgate. 6 cyl is able to haul 600 pounds without any change in performance. If i have to replace my pickup truck it will be with a second nox.

I love my 2010 Chevy Equinox LT and all the features it has. I have a rear back up camera, digital heating and cooling icons. And even though it is a 4 cylinder it has get up and go. I also like the remote start feature and the bluetooth capability when my phone rings it automatically comes through my radio once I synced my bluetooth with my phone. The vehicle has a lot of neat features on it.

I bought this vehicle new when the re-design occurred for the 2010 model year. I wanted a relatively large vehicle that could get good gas mileage and the 32mpg hwy rating was great. I have been thrilled since with the extra details that the vehicle has that make driving a pleasure. I have the 2LT. The voice commands are great. USB connectivity for music is great. The automatic climate controls are great. The fan slows down when you get a phone call. The interior is very quiet. The remote start turns on the heated seats if it is too cold out. On top of all of that, it is very safe. I have my great mileage people moving commuter and it is full of other creature comforts that makes driving more pleasant. Highly recommended. The 4cyl model I have is not a race car but it has plenty of power for me.

Although I haven't had mine that long I really like the style and ride. It handles well on the turns. I'm hoping to save on gas mileage. I had to get used to driving a 4 Cly. again but it seems to pick speed up fast enough. I too don't care for the rear headrests being so big and not adjustable. Also the center console seems a bit to big and takes up space when having to wear a Winter coat it's a little snug. The heater/air cond. fan is very loud. I look forward to finding out how well it does in the snow with the AWD.

Consumes More Oil Than Any Vehicle I've Ever Owned

The vehicle is beautifully designed compared to a lot of SUV's nowadays, it gets great MPGs, sometimes but you can't overlook the issues that they have. There is a fatal flaw in the design of the engine and their high pressue direct injection fuel pumps. My equinox is out of warranty and is now in need of a $3000 repair in order to stop its oil consuming ways. At last check it consumed 2+ quarts of oil in just 2000 miles. If GM would stand behind their mistakes and defects I would recommend this vehicle. But how could I ever suggest this and allow another person to go through what I am going through with this pile of garbage. Google Equinox Oil Consumption yourself and you'll see.

We have had our 2010 Equinox for a little over two months and have put just over 2,000 miles on it. It is tightly constructed. The doors shut with a solid thud. The interior space is outstanding, and with the 8 way power driver seat, one can adjust for a tall person or a short person. Back seat legroom, seat height and thigh support are leaders in this class. The fore- and aft-movable back seat is icing on the cake. Front seats are firm, but supportive in the right places. The dash layout is pleasing to the eye. Fuel economy: We bought the four cylinder, front wheel drive to get maximum gas mileage, and have not been disappointed. On a 600 mile trip with less than 1,000 miles on the odometer, it got right at 31 mpg. Around town it gets right at 21-22. A mixed city/highway tank will produce about 24-25 mpg. Please note, though, that we both drive with a very light foot on the accelerator. Trying to accelerate a 3800 pound vehicle with a heavy foot will take a big toll on the city mpgs. Driving a car, especially one with as big a frontal area as this one has, at 70-75 mph will seriously eat into highway mileage. My only complaint deals with the transmission. The 6 speed tranny is programmed to upshift quickly and easily and downshift slowly. Thus, I find the engine lugging a bit when trying to accelerate from 40 miles per hour. The transmission will finally downshift but only after I put a fair amount of pressure on the accelerator. Putting the car in "ECO" mode only makes the problem worse. I'm sure Chevy engineers tweeked the program that controls the engine and transmission to get maximum mpgs for the EPA ratings, but the price in performance is frustrating. Also, it is not a smooth transmission in shifting as I can feel both upshifts and downshifts. This is not a big problem but is noticeable. One other complaint: the LTZ model of this car, that costs almost $30,000, needs dual zone AC controls. The upper end versions of all of the other cars in this class, Ford Escape, Honda CR/V, Toyota RAV/4, Subaru Forester, all have them.

PROS: Good experience in winter driving (even with 2WD) Silent cabin Interesting design Easy to keep in control when you take a curve The best odometer/speedometer system to switch from mi to km CONS: Breaking distance close to unacceptable Fuel economy (as promised) is not reachable Few free options if I compare with competitors (e.g. no mp3 input, no rack) I feel a light slack in the steering wheel Low fuel light not working in my Equinox Boring dashboard/radio lighting
